Nina Ratings and Reviews
This was our second time. First time was a disaster .This time food was delish. Service was something to be desired . We never got bread , had to ask. Butter was soft, asked for different butter,came out same . Waiter never came to check on us, had to call for him as he swung past us. We actually had to ask a different waiter for another glass of wine. I think they ran out of tins to wrap food, he actually put our fish in a soup container.Not sure if we would visit again.😕
I've eaten there before and have been satisfied. This time we were in a very uncomfortably warm table in the corner. The restaurant was not busy this night and yet they could not get the temperature regulated to the comfort of the diners. The food was OK except the rack of lamb was not very good. Didn't seemed grilled, more like potted meat. Not cooked properly.
We loved the calamari and the Osso Buco . However, were disappointed with the Caesar Salad. There was no Romaine Lettuce in it, only iceberg lettuce. Always order Caesar when we are out and did expect to find Romaine in it. Otherwise food and service was excellent.
Restaurant week selections. Great oysters (not on special menu, but we were accommodated)
Mushroom soup really unique; codfish dish excellent; linguine dish OK at best, barely moist, no discernible sauce; added grated cheese; took it home and served leftover with a nice bolognese sauce (much better). Desserts were good (chocolate mousse and creme brûlée). Waiter was very professional, knew his stuff. Being Lent and a Friday night I wish there were a couple other non-meat selections. We love Nina's, have dined there several times.
I've been to ninas last year on Valentine's Day and was very impressed it had a full menu the food was great and couldn't ask for a better experience on that special occasion. This year we went to ninas and was not impressed at all the service felt rushed, we ordered everything all at once it was a set menu with four appetizers and four entrees in which i would of liked something else it had a set price at 59$ which was reasonable the portion size were very small and they included the gratuity in the check. To spend 150$ on a special occasion on Valentine's Day I was hoping for better all around. we looked at ninas as our Valentine's Day spot and next year we will find somewhere else
We met with friends for a Jan 1st brunch and were stunned by the ambiance,
Should they have done a thorough background check on us they couldn't have come up with a better fitting playlist (European standards).
Great service (kitchen rather slow, but on Jan. 1st, we ought to give them a pass)
we loved the brunch selection, tried omelets and sandwiches, salmon salad, fresh flavorful fruits, we left nothing on those plates.
Ah, and good coffee too. Will go back as often as we'll be in town.
First time going out on Christmas Eve. Thought it would be nice to go to a local restaurant. Last two times we were there the service unfortunately was not the best. Food has also not been consistently good. Wanted to give them another chance. Again, we really like to support or local businesses.
Once waitress was informed of our presence (15 minutes passed) menus and drink offerings were made. I love the ambiance but unfortunately cannot recommend due to poor service. Food was good but for what was spent I expected a bit more.
As usual food was very good. Our server, however, was very poor . Our server forgot to bring drinks from the bar on 2 occasions and had to be reminded 2X . Also she did not bring grated cheese despite offering to do and our advising her that we would like some.
We had to get her attention from a distance and by the time she brought it , the person in my dinner party was more than 1/2 way through his meal.
This was very unusual as typically service is very good.
Food was excellent. The atmosphere was casual and comfortable. Music was subtle in the background so conversation was easy without straining to hear each other. Over all, it was a pleasant dining experience. My only complaint was the time that it took to receive our meals was a bit excessive. We were seated immediately at 6:00, ordered our meals by 6:20, and we received our meals at 7:30 after asking if there was a reason for the delay. The staff was very attentive and I ate more than my share of fresh bread while we waited, but it was a little bit of a let down given the price and my expectations.
